*The Faux Socialite© frantically calls ALL contacts in the Blackberry. Swears. Sighs. Calls one of Ibiza’s owners to make nice. Grovels. Calls Feeding America to work the volunteer angle. Crys.*

Feeding America
The Recording Industry Association of America is an INVITATION ONLY inaugural charity ball at Ibiza Nightclub in Washington DC to benefit Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization. Need more of an incentive to wrangle an invite?

Let’s just say…RIHANNA…will be performing with other entertainers yet to be announced!

Welt.de

Of course, The Faux Socialite’s© tried-and-true sponsorship tactic can be launched by contacting PJ McCann for Feeding America at (202) 669-2687 or pjmccann@comcast.net. But hold onto your Louis Vuitton wallets cause it ain’t gonna come cheap! 





Aloha Inaugural Ball

18 12 2008

18 January 2009

Ahhh….

Black sands, warm tradewinds, tension gone on a wave of aloha spirit

KathyBoast.com

Hawaii is one of The Faux Socialite’s© fav places…it’s the multi-cultural, mellow paradise of it all!

Quite fitting that the home state inaugural ball of Handsome-Elect Barack Obama is THE most coveted ticket in the Nation’s Capital! 

Blaine Fergerstrom

The Aloha Inaugural Ball, sponsored by Hawaii for Obama and held at the  Marriott Wardman Park,  is open to everyone, but getting a ticket?

Wellll….not so simple.

You see Faux Socialites, this event had been SOLD OUT for a few weeks…particularly considering the rumor that Good Looking-Elect could pop in for a visit…

The Faux Socialite© Note: Remember that “No is not an option!” While tickets can not be extorted or stolen…cough, cough…an enterprising Faux Socialite knows that obtaining sponsorship (with 10 friends) is often event entrée gold.
